I'm not sure but Sky Full Of Moon has the look and feel of one of Ann Sothern's old Maisie films. True Jan Sterling's character is a bit more dishonest than Maisie Revier ever was, but Sterling has a lot in common with that Brooklyn showgirl.

Sky Full Of Moon also anticipates the classic film Bus Stop with Marilyn Monroe and Don Murray. Carleton Carpenter is a pleasant and drifting cowboy named tumbleweed for his lack of roots. He's arrived in Las Vegas to enter the big rodeo. But he's a wee short of cash.

Carpenter and Sterling hook up and they get into all kinds of situations. But as it is in these films these two are fated to be mated.

There's a nice supporting part for Keenan Wynn as a bar owner who Sterling rips off and gets Carpenter innocently caught up. In the end he turns out to be not quite a hard case.

Skyful Of Moon is a pleasant enough bit of viewing from MGM's B picture unit.
